QUILT CLUBS: WINTER - SPRING 2015

(Sorry, web discounts do not apply to clubs.)
If you have a special interest and wish to share it with other kindred spirits, one of our clubs may be just right for you. Our clubs differ slightly from our classes: they are less instructional, with more interaction between club members. We always have an advisor on hand to give direction and to offer assistance.

Sometimes We Cancel a Class…
On occasion we will cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. We make that decision ten (10) days before the scheduled class.
